Collecting, Trading and Selling Cars that We Absolutely Love

"O u r S t o r y" I am Steve Phelps, a Retired Entrepreneur / CEO who has a "Real Passion" for cars and been in the car business in one way or the other all my life. I've started many companies and spent the majority of my life founding and running a Healthcare Company which became a large Publicly traded Corporation. After my company merged with a much larger company I retired from healthcare and fulfilled a lifelong dream .. by .. purchasing a Honda dealership. I eventually retired again and relocated to Orlando, Florida. However, my family continued to depend on me to help them find and purchase high quality,reliable used automobiles. Many stated "I only trust family when it comes to purchasing a used automobile". SO ... I HAD A NEW BUSINESS IDEA: Develop a business where: My Family (I have always dreamed of starting a business with my children) Can help: Your Family Navigate the treterious process of finding and purchasing a high quality, reliable used automobile at a great price. Now ... my son Joshua and my daughter Loreanna are my two Top Managers. I manage the selection and purchase of our Quality Automobiles and direct the Sales Effort. Loreanna manages administrative matters such as Posting Ads, coordinating Paperwork, Payments and Shipping. Joshua manages Vehicle Inventory, Reconditioning and Photography. And ... we have adopted the following motto: "My Family Treating Your Family Royally" *Royal Auto & Truck Sales LLC*

Mission: "My Family Treating Your Family Royally"

FSD HOT ROD RANCH UNVEILS IT’S FIRST COMMISSIONED BUILD

This week Joshua, Loreanna and I traveled to Louisville, Kentucky to do a unveiling of our First Commissioned build. About a month ago, Scott Andrews who is the Founder and CEO of Jacksonville, Florida based RSS Corporation visited the FSD Hot Rod Ranch looking for a “Rugged Truck” to use as his corporate Mascot. RSS is one of Fortune Magazine’s 500 fastest growing companies and has several branded business that it franchises throughout the United States. Scott shared that one of his franchise business “BoxDrop” (with over 350 franchisees) would be holding their annual meeting the second week of January in Louisville, Kentucky. He also shared his vision for a “Rugged Truck Mascot” to be unveiled during this event. He also explained that he referred to his franchise owners as “Rugged Entrepreneurs” and was in the process of authoring a book entitled “Rugged Entrepreneurs”. He wanted a “Rat Rod” type vehicle with loads of corporate identification for RSS, BoxDrop and his other franchise entities. Well, even though we have a full shop at the FSD Hot Rod Ranch with a expert team (who have many years of combined restoration and build experience), we have never agreed to a actual build of a specialized vehicle. However, as a “Rugged Entrepreneur” myself, I just could not pass up this opportunity.

Fortunately, we located the perfect Rat Rod (a 1939 Ford Pickup) which could be built into the corporate vehicle Scott was looking for. Our shop manager, Jeff Allen and his team of Dan Belanger (wood working) , Lee Ash (Mechanic), Federico Monjaras (mechanic) and Ray Aviles (detailer) worked tirelessly to complete the job on time and to insure it was the quality vehicle Scott requested.

Josh, Loreanna and I each participated in the design process as well as helped source parts and materials. Additionally, we coordinated with several outside vendors (Mikey Ayers @ Pinstriping by Mikey, David Green @ Swamp Daddy Airboats and James Lindhurst @ Boathouse Upholstery) to create the 1939 Ford “Rugged Entrepreneur” build.

On Monday evening Keith McCracken (our shipping driver), Josh, Loreanna and I headed to Louisville … and … we could not have been treated nicer by Scott, his wife Daphanie and the whole RSS team. On Tuesday evening, RSS rented the whole “Old Forester Bourbon Distillery” in downtown Louisville for about 100 of their top Franchisees and kindly included the three of us as their guest, A incredible tour and dinner ensued with Darian Darias (a retired 10 year NFL Jaguars player. author and entrepreneur) being the keynote speaker. While we were at the dinner, Keith brought the “Rugged Entrepreneur“ 39 Ford into the Gault House Ballroom (convention host hotel) and covered it with it’s custom black cover.

The following morning, 650 RSS and DropBox participants arrived for the morning session of the convention … along with … a camera crew from Fox’s TV show “Trending Now”. After welcoming remarks, Scott requested that the top BoxDrop franchisees (who had attended the dinner the previous night) all come to the front of the ballroom and make a semi-circle behind the covered truck. Josh then showed a short video that he had prepared about the build … and … at the end the lights went down, the truck was uncovered, the lights came back up … and … THE CROWD WENT WILD!!

Josh, Loreanna and I want to thank Scott and his team for this opportunity to build their company mascot … and … for the incredible reception we received by all the participants of the RSS BoxDrop Convention. This is a experience we will never forget!!

The FSD Hot Rod Ranch is Expanding!!

One of dad’s ideas for the family ranch has always been to build a home for each of his children on the ranch. So … I [Joshua] have been working (for the last 4 months) with dad’s architect … and … the original ranch builder, Dan (who will be our contractor on this project) designing my new home. The plans are now complete and the building permit is pulled, It will be a 2-story building where the 1st level will hold up to 18 cars (15 for the business … and … 3 for me) and the 2nd floor will be my 2,400 square foot home. I am really excited … since … it also gives me more room to grow my project cars and personal collection (maybe some day I’ll need all the spaces down stairs for my collection).

We are very excited to start this 1st step in the expansion of the FSD Hot Rod Ranch. And … Dad has more ranch expansion planned … so … we can’t wait to show you when each project starts!

Here’s a few of my designs for my home … also I have some plans to make it more my own in and around the house + the driveway. The home of Steve Darnell [Welderup, Las Vegas] is my inspiration for decorating. So … it will be “B E A U T I F U L” ! ! !

Our Story

I am Steve Phelps, a Retired Entrepreneur who has a “Real Passion” for Cars and has been in the Automobile business as a Buyer, Collector or Seller most of my life. Professionally, I have a CFO/CEO background and spent the majority of my life founding and running a Healthcare Company which became a large NASDAQ Publicly Traded Corporation. I eventually retired and purchased a Honda Automobile Dealership to pursue my passion for cars. Then … I retired again (this time for good) and relocated to beautiful Central Florida. However, my incredible wife, Eunice, became ill and went home to be with the Lord and I found myself with nothing to do. I had two adult children (Joshua & Loreanna) still living at home … and … I had an idea ……………. I would pursue my passion for Automobiles … while … teaching my children what I had learned about Life, Business, Hard Work and Professionalism. I formed a business … “Father, Son & Daughter LLC”. And started Collecting, Trading and Selling ... "Cars that We Absolutely Love" as ... "Royal Auto & Truck Sales". We are now close to selling 500 cars through the Internet and … we have purchased the “FSD Hot Rod Ranch”. This is the Greatest Business Venture of my Life!

I'm at the point of, too old to drive, too many cars, and decided to start cleaning my garages out, as I have 5 vehicles and I don't think my wife would know what to do with them when I pass.I see you have a fat fenders Chevy PU, so do I. It has won more car shows than I can count, 3 NSRA awards, one Goodguy,trick truck award, on PPG paint calendar 2013, Mike Kelly's Cruise News cover, Hard Core Chevy website, picked top ten for 2018 and too many trophy's in my rear garage.I have only seen, one built better than mine, and he beat me out at NSRA and went on to SELMA, and won a good award there also. This is a professional built hot rod, and I could send you more pictures, if you think you maybe interested? Roger Barr, US Army Retired, 863-701-1931
We ran into your Dad and sister at Seven Bites this past Sunday. Enjoyed meeting them and talking about cars. My son is a avid car person and he loves what you guys are doing to your fleet.
